The Avengers to close Tribeca Film Festival
Tribeca Film Festival has announced that ‚ÄúThe Avengers‚ÄĚ will close the festival with a screening on April 28. The screening will celebrate everyday heroes from police agencies, fire departments, first responders and various branches of the U.S. military who will have an opportunity to attend the screening and meet the cast.
‚ÄúWe are proud that Marvel‚Äôs The Avengers is the closing film of this year‚Äôs Tribeca Film Festival and we are excited to welcome local heroes to the screening as special guests,‚ÄĚ said Marvel Studios‚Äô Kevin Feige. ‚ÄĚ We all know and love our iconic Super Heroes, but when it really counts, it‚Äôs our real-life heroes who save the world every day by making it a better place for all of us.‚ÄĚ
Director Joss Whedon added his support in a news release.
‚ÄúShowing at Tribeca is both an honor and a double homecoming for me, who grew up in Manhattan, and for the movie, which wrapped production there,‚ÄĚ Whedon said. ‚ÄúI‚Äôm thoroughly psyched to be closing the festival with our intimate little think-piece.‚ÄĚ
